I haven't sewn a stitch for such a long time Cry, but when one of my work colleagues said in passing that her OH had accidentally broken their son's birth year ornament, I knew what I had to make her for Christmas...

So without much ado (really, there is not much at all), this is what I whipped up using fabric and notions entirely from my stash (this does not even dent my enormous stash)...

The style/shape is my own vague design with only the most basic of measuring, and I also used some felt to applique a snowman and the birth year on there (fortunately I remembered this bit of info). My colleague and her OH loved it, said it was much more roomy than the wee man's existing one (lucky boy now has two Cheesy).

But you can't just do one work colleague and leave the other's child out. As this colleague was away for the entire Christmas period, it was not so much of a rush and I finished it this weekend. Her child is a girl, so its a little more feminine.

I hope I remember the year correctly, its been a bit of a mission to figure it out. I put a tree on this one, but the star is a little lost.

I put bells on the handles, so they would jingle but mostly because I have a heap of them floating around the house. They were a pain to sew, as the amount of fabric because too much for my little machine to get through, and I could not do the french seams I wanted to do...but I am reasonably happy with them. Grin

Comments and suggestions are most welcome....

Happy viewing and happy crafting in this new year!
